Publisher Comments:

The politics, social issues, and cultural impacts of Latin American migration to the United States are often studied by historians and political scientists, but the regional focus is typically on the Southwest and California. This study examines the phenomenon of the impact of Latin American migration on the southeastern United States, a region that now has the nation's fastest growing immigrant population.

Incorporating a political demography approach, this study seeks to provide a clear understanding of the complex dynamics of migration with particular emphasis on the unique demographic "fit" between the United States and Latin America. This fit arises from one region needing young workers while the other has more than its economy can absorb. Although a relatively simple concept, it is one that has largely been ignored in the political discussions of migration policy. This study argues that the social and political ramifications of and policy responses to Latin American immigration can best be understood when viewed in light of these circumstances.

Book News Annotation:

Weeks (Latin American studies at the U. of North Carolina at Charlotte) and Weeks (geography at San Diego State U.) present this analysis of the causes and effects of Latin American migration to the US. This book focuses on the Southwestern States and California, a region which has been engaged in a symbiotic relationship with Latin American migrants for a very long time. The many factors at play in this issue are covered here in this book appealing to those studying politics and Latin American studies. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
